    My '09 Access Cab had daytime running lights installed by the distributor and I bought it that way from the dealer. They use the turn signals as the DTRL and, unfortunately, the enclosure is not designed to have that much heat all the time. It is melting from the inside out.

    How do I disable the DTRL and return the vehcile to the way Toyota designed it? I called the dealer and they are want $100 to fix the problem they sold me for $40.

    Any help?
